A North Texas man says he was the victim of road rage that escalated into a violent attack.
He says another driver brake checked him and another car boxed him in. When the man pulled over he was beaten up by several men.
Looking back, Mohammad Saeed knows he made some mistakes and could have been killed. He also wants the men that attacked him, caught. He wants others to learn what he did wrong when encountering road rage.
"This car just cuts in front of me and just misses me, by like a foot or two, so I honked at it and flashed the high beams. So he just slams his brakes in front of me," said Saeed.
Mohammad Saeed says it was raining Saturday afternoon when this happened northbound on I-35 in Dallas by the Hwy. 183 split.
As Saeed changed lanes, he says a second car started slamming on the brakes in front of him as well.
"So I go into a third lane and the car in the first lane, that initially started it, comes around gets in front of me and slams on his brakes so hard that I was doing like 10 or 5 miles an hour on 35, in traffic and I had to put my hazards on just to avoid other drivers hitting me," he said.
Mohammad said he was about to call 911 when the cars boxed him in. So he pulled over near the Mockingbird exit off Hwy. 183.
"I get out of the car and by the time I even open the door this much, this guy is already here, he ran up to me and I get out and he pushes me. So, I push him back and literally, this is where we're standing and this is the highway, and I wasn't expecting him to come at me like that," said Saeed.
Mohammad said moments later the second vehicle with three men in it stopped and got out. "In like a minute or like 30 seconds I went from 2 guys to five guys," said Saeed.
Mohammad says he feared he would get knocked into Hwy. 183 and run over.
He says while he was being beaten he was able to look at and memorized the license plate.
After suffering scrapes, bruises and a black eye, Mohammad wants to advise all drivers to never get out of the car when in an situation like he was in. He suggests to pull back, get the license plate and call the police.
Police say if you get involved in a situation like this do not make eye contact. If it appears to be escalating, immediately call 911 and try to give them a make and model and direction of the aggressive vehicle. If you can, give them a plate number but do not follow them. If you get boxed in, by all means stay inside your vehicle while you call police.
Saeed was able to call police. FOX4 received a copy of the police report and it does confirm there were two cars involved and police are investigating an aggravated assault.
